#METOO AND THE MOVIES: Dignity For Actors In The Age Of Accountability + Interview With Megan Gilron, Intimacy Coordinator/Director In Film & TV
IN THIS EPISODE, we go to HOLLYWOOD!
To be more specific, we get intimate with Hollywood!
(To be even more specific, we go to Vancouver)
We learn about how the film industry is evolving its creation and representation of intimacy in movies and TV!
& We get behind-the-scenes peaks in our conversation with a real life intimacy coordinator in the film industry!
had the privilege of conversing with Megan Gilron, intimacy coordinator for film & TV, based in Vancouver. Intimacy coordination is a quite a recent development, stemming pretty directly from the Me Too movement.
Since 2017, demand for the position in film & tv productions has steadily gained traction, to help control workplace misconduct & to help ensure that people aren’t being taken advantage of in what is often an impulsive, high-stakes industry.
Thanks to actor Emily Meade on HBO’s “The Deuce”, the need for choreographing scenes of intimacy of both a sexual nature and a familial or platonic has now become a standard role recognized across the film industry here in the US, in Canada, and Europe.
So we had a great chat with Megan, who is an Intimacy Coordinator/Director and has been instrumental in shaping the future of this new role in filmmaking. She had so many interesting thoughts to share on the past & future of the film industry & how these changes might be reflected in our relationship to the stories on the silver screen.
